Shakespeare's Lost Play: In Search of Cardenio
Gregory Doran (Author)
Gregory Doran's account of his quest to re-discover Cardenio, the lost play written by Shakespeare and John Fletcher.
Shakespeare, Cervantes, Middleton and Fletcher. The giants of 16th-century literature are all involved in the mystery surrounding Cardenio; a play 'lost' for centuries, which many believe to be the work of England's greatest dramatist.
With his incredible passion for, and understanding of, the work of William Shakespeare, director and author Gregory Doran takes the reader on a unique journey; a fascinating search through the fog of literary history for a glint of dramatic gold, and a thrilling account of re-imagining and staging the most enigmatic of Shakespearean plays. A journey from 16th-century Spain to the libraries of Oxford, the rehearsal rooms of London and the Swan Theatre in Stratford as Gregory Doran re-imagines Shakespeare's 'lost play'.
Doran’s much-praised production of Cardenio for the Royal Shakespeare Company marked the culmination of years spent searching for a famously 'lost’ play co-authored by William Shakespeare.
In this book, Doran takes us with him on his quest to unearth every extant clue and then into the rehearsal room as he pieces together a play unseen since its first performance in 1613.
Fully illustrated throughout, Shakespeare’s Lost Play tells a fascinating story, which, like the play itself, will engross Shakespeare buffs and theatregoers alike.
